Meet the Team

The hard working people that make it happen!

There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace. – Kofi A.Annan, UN Secretary-General
